Pretty smart innovation Bud. You keep giving me all of these cool ideas, and I'm never gonna remember them! I'm with Mike... waiting for the night picture of the dash. Maybe tonight??
I wish, Not tonight.
I'm waiting to put the ECU under the dash, before the dash goes back on. Im crossing my fingers that the ECU will fit where the OEM one was. But, I need the darn thing to show up first. This weekend - I hope!
The Harness, ECU, Throttle Body, Throttle Cable, and the TCC Brake switch were all at my door yesterday. I pulled it all out and started making connections like it was my job. It was a late one last night. More tonight!
So many things you don't think about, and so many little parts that nickle and dime you.
The harness is connected to the engine, all sensors are hooked up. still need to put indicator lights in the dash, before that and the steering column can go back in. The Engine has oil, Antifreeze, tranny fluid, and power steering fluid - Check! Need to get Knock Sensors for a LS1 as the new harness and ECU do not support the LS2 knocks. Need O2 Sensors and some down pipes connected to the block huggers. Also, need a bracket for the throttle cable. I thought the new throttle body would come with one, I thought wrong.
I started work on the air intake tubing as well. But the placement I have chosen will need a extension harness for the MAF Sensor.
After I got it into the Jeep, I took off the second black tube and clamped a filter from Auto Zone on it. I'll get a picture if you want. I don't plan on it being permanent, but it works for now.
Here is what I came up with- Made out of a Spectre Intake system for a chevy 1500 with an extra elbow on it . But I'm really starting to run out of room. I think I got this Engine bay, pretty much full.
Nice tach! The stock tach only goes to 6k, and I'm sick of pegging it all the time. Might need a 10k for my stock L-head!
Seriously, great work. Glad to see you "attacking" it!
Now if I can borrow a paint booth to lay down some Loden Green Metallic (w/a little extra metal flake).
I forget who had that sweet Green Golden Eagle that helped me decide to keep it the original color. Thanx guys!
